Promotional Marketing Blog - Insider Info

Apr 28

If you own a gym or health club, or are a personal trainer, ordering a batch of custom t-shirts may be the last thing on your mind. If so, you're missing out! Custom t-shirts are a great way to promote your business. Here are a few of our favorites reasons to include t-shirts in your marketing mix:


By offering a gym shirt with every membership purchased—or by giving your customers the opportunity to purchase one—you will make your members feel included in the gym family. Additionally, seeing someone with the gym shirt while out and about can be a great conversation starter between members, making the family feeling even stronger.


When a person gets a new t-shirt, it is pretty likely they are going to wear it from time to time. Every time your members wear their shirts out to run errands or pick up the kids from school, they are giving your business free advertisement. This advertisement works especially well when your satisfied customers engage in conversations about their t-shirt and their gym.

In addition to offering your members a fun way to feel included in the "club", customer t-shirts also work well as inexpensive-yet-uniform employee attire. Order your employees' shirts in a different color than those the members wear in order to make them easy to spot.

Fitness-related businesses can benefit in all these ways from high-quality, custom t-shirts. Fortunately, here at EmbroidMe San Diego, we offer just that. Want to learn more about what we have to offer? Please contact us today!

Custom Embroidered Aprons For Baristas

Coffee slinging is a messy business. Coffee, milk, and syrups all have a tendency to spill, especially during those early-morning rush hours. If you own a coffee shop, you have been in the thick of the morning-coffee mess, and you know it's not pretty.

custom-embroidered-apronThough it won't eliminate your staff's need to mop and clean countertops, there is a solution for keeping your baristas looking spick-and-span even when things get a little busier than normal. This solution is quite simple, and has been used for ages, and it works just as well now as ever.

The solution is aprons. They are inexpensive, they protect your employees' clothing, and they can be changed quickly and easily in case of a big spill, leaving your staff looking good as new all the time.
Even better than a set of matching aprons, custom embroidered aprons can give your staff that professional look every manager longs for. When your employees are wearing an apron adorned with your company's logo, your customers know who they can turn to for help. Additionally, aprons give the same, pulled-together look—and even a sense of community—that other uniforms might give without having to set a strict dress code or take away the originality of your employees.

Custom Embroidery for Hotels and Inns

Custom embroidery is useful in a wide variety of situations. For instance, many hotel and inn owners have found this option quite handy when it comes to personalizing items in their places of business.

From uniforms to towels, innkeepers have numerous options that can be customized with embroidery, and there are several benefits of doing so:

Custom embroidery can pull a place of business together unlike anything else. Because embroidery is a very professional-looking branding option, it tends to bring things together in a cohesive yet classy way that customers are sure to appreciate.

Custom embroidery on the uniforms of employees shows that the company cares about the appearance of their staff, while embroidery on bedding and towels shows an attention to detail.

Increased Brand Awareness

Tacky, in-your-face branding just isn't a great look for hotels and other places of lodging. That's said, these companies do still want to use strong branding as a way to help their customers remember them in a positive light. Custom embroidery gives innkeepers the option to brand items throughout the property, without coming across as too bold, or breaking the bank.

Reduced Risk of Theft

Customized items help discourage this act. Guests are less likely to steal an item if it is clearly labeled with a company name, as it is more difficult to hide the fact that it was taken from a hotel room.

If your hotel, motel, or B&B inn is in need of custom embroidery, please contact us today at EmbroidMe San Diego. We would be happy to help your business!
